Abstract: Takrarishta is an Ayurvedic formulation which contains Go-Takra (buttermilk prepared from curd of cow’s milk), Amla, Harda, Marich, Ajowan, Saindhava namak, Sauvarcala namak, Bida namak, Audbhida namak and Samudra namak and is indicated against haemorrhoids, worm infestation, loss of appetite, irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhoea. In present investigation, Takrarishta formulation has been screened for antibacterial activity against ten bacterial species namely Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Bacillus subtilis (MTCC 441), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MTCC 424), Proteus vulgaris (MTCC 1771), Micrococcus luteus (MTCC 1541), Bacillus cereus (MTCC 430) Escherichia coli (MTCC 739), Shigella flexneri (MTCC 1457) and Clostridium perfringens (NCIM 2677). The formulation as well as individual component exhibited antibacterial activity against different strains. The formulation has been suggested to be useful in gastrointestinal (GI) infections and in the condition of food poisoning.
